Andy Reid Has Donovan McNabb Redskins Jersey Removed From Fan At Training Camp

mcnabb jersey e1281538806420 Andy Reid Has Donovan McNabb Redskins Jersey Removed From Fan At Training CampWhen Jim Devlin woke up this morning, he made a decision; that decision was to go to Lehigh University for Eagles Training Camp. That wasn’t the only decision Jim made, Jim also decided to wear a Donovan McNabb Redskins jersey to practice. Jim said he does it to make a statement and “get reactions out of people.”

Andy Reid also made a decision today. Big Red decided that he didn’t want Jim to wear that jersey on the sideline at practice today.

These two decisions are clearly opposed. Want to guess whose decision won out?

Well, it’s Coach Reid’s practice, so what Andy says, goes. Devlin was asked by a security guard to remove the jersey, and he did so without protest.

I’m all for making statements, but the guy knew what he was doing, right? If anything, Devlin has to be overjoyed that Reid actually noticed the jersey.

I think Reid had every right to have the jersey removed, and Devlin had every right to try to make his statement. Everyone wins and goes home happy!

I wonder if the receivers instinctively started diving at the ground when they saw the #5 jersey.

    not an eagle fan, not a mcnabb fan, and CERTAINLY not an andy reid fan. He should have had practice closed to the public. He is grossly over-rated, hasn’t done a thing with the talent he’s had . Time to boot his overpaid rump ass to the curb.

  2. Bill Wescott says:

    Andy should have let it go and said nothing

  3. Bosco says:

    It is inappropriate to wear the jersey. Double violation! This is not a Redskins camp and McNabb is no longer with the team.

    It’s kinda like on flight night, when I saw someone wearing a NY Mets Reyes shirt??? WTF??? First, this is an Eagles game, second, this is football… moron. What purpose does it serve but to bring attention to yourself.

    Oh. Now Eskin just said it was the security guard that had the jersey removed.

    *goes home happy

  6. Rick says:

    I guess everyone goes happy, but…this one of the more infantile things I’ve heard of from a pro-team. Why is the Eagles brass so touchy? Good lord…

    This action today by the Eagles coach and follow through by security just reaffirms my position on the eagles. A second class organization. The fan waering the jersey was denied his legal reight of free speech. he was not waering anything vulgar. I hope that McNabb embarasses the eagles and their organization when the Eagles play the Red Skins.

    1. Mike says:

      Guy above me is a second class speller.

    2. Spike says:

      With all due respect Stephen, the right to free speech does not include being able to wear a Redskins jersey on the sidelines of a professional sports team’s practice on the private property of a University. That’s not what the legal right to free speech applies to.

  8. Tyler Elliott says:

    Well- happy ending would be that the fan got beat up and then McNabb tears his ACL during first preseason and is out 5-6mths

    1. Spike says:

      Hahahaha, happy for you perhaps.
